Booked this for my birthday based on good reviews. Nice place. Interesting design. We were asked to wait at the bar while our table was getting cleared. Felt very welcome, were given their menu and a list of specials which the guy who met us said he'll go over. That was the last time we saw him. Waitress came over... More

....but what it is is a cute little restaurant, good food, very attentative wait staff with good prices. The waiters are all very friendly Dutch art students from the school down the road and they enjoy talking to Americans. The cuisine is Caribbean with an Arubian flare. The food, actually surprisingly good for what initially looked like a touristy place.... More

high prices for a regular food, nothing special, the presentation of the food is horrible... if you're in an art & gallery restaurant you're expecting some art or almost a nice plating... far far away... we order only 1 appetizer... never come to the table, the coctails wasn't good and our wine too warm... the service is not good at...

It looks Latin, it sounds Latin, but it’s 100% Aruban. What a beautiful little place tucked nicely out of the way of the main tourist traps scattered around Oranjestad. The menu is diverse as the art work and the staff. Being in Aruba on assignment I try to find the small family owned places and avoid the tourist traps and... More

I just walked in this place and found the staff and food to be delightful. They had freshly caught fish and brought some gratis palette teasers. The bartender was Dutch and among the best I have ever had. This is a must if you are in Aruba

I chose this restaurant for our 1 anniversary dinner due to its good reviews (google and trip advisor). I can say that the overall experience was nice: the waiters are really kind, the place is nicely decorated with art pieces that can be bought and the food (a bit on the gourmet and on the small side) was very good....

We have had the pleasure of dining here during our last 6-7 visits to this wonderful island. The food is a culinary treat with friendly Dutch servers who explain the menu thoroughly, Looking forward to our next visit next week.

Allthough the name Que Pasa is a familiar Mexican phrase, we are not a Mexican restaurant. Situated in a 100 year old, traditional Aruban building, in downtown Oranjestad. We offer an international menu. There is something for everybody. Besides our menu we are known for our daily changing specials. Our chefs make sure to create unique dinners every night and our attentive wait staff is there to make your evening special. We can accomodate everybody from families to large groups. You have a choice of dinning upstairs open air or downstairs a/c. The que pasa crew hopes to welcome you soon!
